I appreciate the honesty, integrity & ethics of gentlemen like RP, +Gary Johnson
& BR, but I don't agree with most of their policy. I think they are going in the right direction, its just to far in my opinion (Gold Standard, nearly elimination of all depts, etc). I wish their were more moderates, with integrity, honesty & ethics in carrying out what they actually campaign on. Most campaign on certain issues, then pursue the agenda's of themselves & their largest donors, pushing legislation that is written by lobbyists & large donors.
I lay in the middle of both the dem & republican platforms. I think Govt needs to reform spending & cost structure, but we shouldn't be gutting programs while providing benefits/tax-cuts/Corp welfare while were doing it.
I think Govt should play a role in providing basic programs & basic social safety nets like Social Security (But programs like paying for cell-phones for low income individuals are programs the Govt shouldn't be doing)
Maybe I'm a misfit?
I disagree with the Dem's on throwing money at every problem (Govt doesn't need to fix every problem).
I think Republicans are to much into the rhetoric, while actively working against their constituents. Providing corporations & large donors the same type of welfare & spending that they want to cut from programs for average citizens I don't see republicans apply the same principles when it comes to the large donors, which seems hypocritical to me.
